Abstract from DBPedia
    Legislation is the process or product of enrolling, enacting, or promulgating law by a legislature, parliament, or analogous governing body. Before an item of legislation becomes law it may be known as a bill, and may be broadly referred to as "legislation" while it remains under consideration to distinguish it from other business. Legislation can have many purposes: to regulate, to authorize, to outlaw, to provide (funds), to sanction, to grant, to declare, or to restrict. It may be contrasted with a non-legislative act by an executive or administrative body under the authority of a legislative act.

    立法(りっぽう、(英: legislation)とは、行政および司法と並ぶ国家作用の一つである。形式的意味においては議会の議決を経て法律を制定することをいうが、実質的意味においては特定の法規範を定立させる国家作用のことである。この国家作用を行う権能を立法権という。
